    Here is some info about SMG2 from the OMN review.

    - Galaxy 2 takes place in an alternate reality where Mario and the Lumas never met
    - the big Luma owns Spaceship Mario, which was transformed into its shape from a simple planet
    - the big Luma is known as 'Lubba'
    - Lubba needs power starts to fuel the ship, which Bowser has stolen...alongside Peach
    - What does Lubba say when he transforms the planet into Spaceship Mario? "Nice spaceship, huh? More like a FACEship!"
    - 40 galaxies
    - the tree slide that appears in some trailers is a star available in TreeTrunk Galaxy
    - Expect more Yoshi action than was had in New Super Mario Bros. Wii
    - Spring Mario only makes 2 appearances
    - Luigi becomes playable in some fashion once you reach 20 stars
    - Another playable character is hinted at for when you reach 120
    - A monkey known as "The Chimp" let's you play minigames
    - good amount of 2d portions
    - expect many throwbacks to classic Mario games once you hit the later stages
    - Bowser stages are similar to those in Super Mario 64


    I find this all very interesting. An alternate universe and another playable character when you reach 120 stars? Speculation? What character do you think will be playable? There was that rumor of Sonic a while back...

    Uhh, Wario? I'd be shocked if Sonic was in it. Actually, I'd never buy anything from Ninty again.

    Wario would be cool. It would be pretty lame if it was just a Toad.

    Maybe at 20 stars, Luigi is like a support, but at 120 stars, you can play as him and only him.

    Maybe peach? Possibly. Once you beat the game you would have rescued her, right? It just better not be Sonic.

    If they have another playable character it will obviously be someone, who could use similar moves like Mario and Luigi and I think that could be Wario.

    But something inside me thinks, that it`s going to be Donkey Kong, since the EAD of Tokyo also did Jungle Beat and if you guys ask me Galaxy received a little bit inspiration from that title (especially the 2D parts with the jump-combos, the spinning flower, etc.) and with some adjustments he could fit in that game... But I doubt that!

    Who knows... [​IMG]

    I'd love it to be DK, although, I think its been long enough that'll he'll have his own game soon. Not a shitty cameo.

    So I'll go with Wario (Y)

    Yeah, DK might be logical since they were behind Jungle Beat.
    Other than that, I haven't the slightest clue ehat the character could be.

    It had better not be Toad, though. [​IMG]

    It has been proven the man who posted this lacks basic reading comprehension.


    In the magazine it's written : "When you get 120 stars, you unlock SOMETHING but we won't tell you what"

    It's SOMETHING not SOMEONE !


    I bet it's a 'secret' galaxy much like in the first SMG

    I don't think he has any reason to have altered the post from the source. Most likely, the source found out that they printed false info so they edited their page, which is why it now says "- something might happen after 120 stars, but specifics are not hinted at."

    It's a magazine so I don't think they edited it.

    Yes, but they have a website too, which can be edited.

    The secret playable character will be Link and the galaxy will suddenly turn into 3rd person adventure. When you finish the game he will pop out and go "Buy my game pirates!" [​IMG]
